Droppin' By Denny's Diner Days Subject

Recommended Posts

We had the opportunity to make a trip up to Anderson, IN Tuesday night. Our purpose was to do a photo shoot for a calendar we're putting together for the local Corvair club. After reading Denny's Diner Days in the current issue of AR, we decided to use the Lemon Drop Drive-In as the backdrop for the photo of my dad's '64 Monza Spyder that will grace one of the months of the pending 2009 calendar. As Denny mentioned in the article, they do close for part of July, as the sign shows. Looks like a great little place though...looking forward to checking it out after they reopen next week. Meanwhile.....

I had a '64 convertible that same color. Great car. My impression is that Nader gets a lot more blame/credit than he deserves related to the demise of the Corvair. I also had a '65 coupe that was white when it left the factory but was glare-free (i.e., really dull) red when I got it.

 

Hope you get a chance to meet Bill and try an onion burger. There is also a restored theater with a really cool neon sign in downtown Anderson.

You and Jennifer both have awesome aesthetic eyes, Pat. Very nice image, this one. Hey, and you only have to wait a couple more days for the re-opening...heh, heh.
